A day in the life of: Futhi Xala

Name: Futhi Xala

Age: 30

Home City / Country: Straight outta Benoni, South Africa

Current Occupation:  Social Media Specialist and an occasional blogger

Time I wake up: 4:30AM

The first thing I do in the morning: Receive lots of kisses from my cute pup, grab my phone, text my training buddy, motivate her to get up & meet me at the gym in 30 min.


Follow Cloe on Insta @CloeTheCuteDog_

My typical breakfast: Boiled Eggs #ForTheLoveOfProtein

Here’s what my morning commute is like: Long but, with no traffic and great sing along tunes! 120 km/h all the way.

I spend most of my day doing: Analysing content on the social pages I look after, coming up with content for trending topics. In meetings to figure how I can add a social media element to upcoming brand campaigns.

After work or school, I like to:  Doing aerobics at work with my colleagues (Mondays & Wednesdays), chill with my two favs (hubs & Cloe our cute furry baby).

A fun night for me includes: Lots of good wine or beer with husband person, and being surrounded by great friends & family.


Time I go to sleep: I usually pass out at about 9PM in front of the TV & eventually peel myself off the couch at about 11PM.

Last thing I do at night: Plan my day so I check my calendar for the next day, pray and it’s lights out.

My favourite thing to do for fun: Mini DIY projects to do at home. Planning weekend getaways. Attending fitness parties, attending home expos and-and-and…

My biggest fear right now: Not giving my best in everything I do.

My biggest hope right now: To achieve all the goals I’ve set for myself & family.

Someday I’d like to: Stop working, study interior design & just do my thing!

The biggest challenge I have overcome so far: Not trusting myself. In the past, I’ve let so many opportunities pass me by simply because I didn’t trust myself.

The biggest challenge I hope to overcome:  Negative body image.

Being a woman is wonderful because:  We always know where everything is (ask my husband), we’re super humans, we can host other humans inside our bodies for NINE months #BabyMakingMachine. NINE! We’re born with a multitasking gene. I could go on for years but, I’ll leave it here.


Being a woman is a challenge because: We constantly have to deal with double standards. We can never be selfish in a way that the opposite sex is, it’s not in our DNA.

I am a Mogul because: As per the meaning of the word I’m important and powerful.
